Meet Karin, A Fitting Connection’s Sample Machinist and much more

Sadly, for A Fitting Connection our Xanthe, our patternmaker, sampling machinist and garment technician is running away to become a wife and settle down in her hometown in New Zealand, and she is not returning (insert large tears here). Every change brings about new possibilities and here at A Fitting Connection we embrace these with enthusiasm. And with that we would like to introduce the newest member of our team Karin.  

Meet Ela our Patternmaker

Sadly for A Fitting Connection our patternmaker Jewelz, has decided to hang up her tools. While this has taken us a little to get use to as Jewelz become a wonderful addition to our team here, we fully support Jewelz with her decision. And with everything Jewelz did she hasn’t let us down as she went and found a wonderful replacement for herself. 

Meet Xanthe our Fit Specialist, Pattern Maker & Seamstress

We would like to introduce the newest member of our team Xanthe. She has a cute little accent but don’t hold that against her, in fact we believe that it’s an assist; we have never met a New Zealander that is anything other than beautiful inside out and have a work ethic that one wished they could bottle. Without further ado let’s ask Xanthe a few questions so we can all get to know her better.
